OBJECT OF THE SUMMER SESSION
The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for regular
students of this and other colleges and universities and for those en-
gaged during the winter in teaching.
The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, situated
practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car or cab fares will
be necessary to visit the shopping district, State Department of Educa-
tion, State Museum, State Library, Hall of History, and other places
of educational interest. An exceedingly bracing and healthful climate
makes this city an ideal place for residence and study.
The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily of
the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together with
additional specialists in the field of education.
A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of approximately
19,000 books is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a competent
librarian who aids the students in their reference work and guides
them in their general reading. Magazines and daily and weekly news-
papers provide means for the information of students on current
events. It is the aim of the Administration to make the library a place
of great usefulness in the education of the students in technical knowl-
edge and general culture.
OBSERVATION AND DIRECTED TEACHING FACILITIES
Local conditions make it impossible for the University to offer ob-
servation and directed teaching facilities.
Persons desiring dormitory accommodations during the Summer
School should indicate that fact to the Registrar, not later than June
2 ; send key deposit of $2.00 with application prior to that date, making
money-order payable to Shaw University. The University has adequate
housing for those who desire to live on the campus. The women stu-
dents are under the supervision of the Dean of Women who is assisted
by dormitory hostesses, and the men students are under the supervision
of the Dean of Men and assistants.
Shaw University Bulletin 5
Tennis, croquet, softball, and sightseeing tours are among the
forms of recreation provided by the University.
In addition, several social events are held for the students and
faculty of the Summer School.
TEACHER'S EMPLOYMENT BUREAU
The Bureau has secured each year a large number of teaching and
administrative positions for students and former students. It exists
for the double purpose of supplying the needs of school officials over
the State and of helping students and former students to find teaching
and administrative positions for which they are best suited.
Assembly exercises are held in Greenleaf Memorial Hall on Mon-
days, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All students are invited to attend these
exercises. Special addresses are arranged and interesting recitals
Teachers are requested to bring their certificates, credit slips from
summer schools previously attended, diplomas, or other evidences of
training. These will be needed for registration the first day. No student
should expect to enter and receive credit after Monday, June 15.
Written application should be made and forwarded in advance. A
transcript signed by the president or principal of the school attended,
containing a full record of the subjects pursued by the student with
the time devoted to each, and his standing in the same, should be sent
to the Registrar of the University before the student registers. Applica-
tion blanks will be furnished on request and should be filled out and
Courses are organized to serve the needs of the following persons :
(a ) High School graduates
( b ) College students
(c) College graduates interested in renewing certificates
(d.) Holders of any of the following certificates:
1. Elementary — any class
2. Primary "C," "B," "A"

WORKSHOP-SEMINAR FOR PRINCIPALS,
SUPERVISORS, AND TEACHERS
Because of the success of the workshop-seminar of other years,
plans are being made to provide a workshop-seminar for teachers,
principals, and supervisors. The workshop-seminar is designed to give
its members an opportunity to clarify their thinking on problems of
educational philosophy, and to give them assistance in defining educa-
tional objectives. Each member will be given a chance to work on prob-
lems which are encountered in his particular school situation. Those
who bring similar problems will be encouraged to work in small, in-
formal groups. In addition, they will have easy access to the services
of a group of sympathetic and competent workshop specialists.
Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours in
supervision and administration. These hours will fulfill the State's re-
quirement for the principal's or supervisor's certificate, and, in addi-
tion, serve to renew certificates.
Registration for workshop will begin June 11. Special fee of $4.50
in addition to regular charges.
For further information, please feel free to communicate with the
Director of Summer School.
